Hooked - (Stacia Naquin)
Updated: 10/11/2013 - I'm SO CLOSE to being able to do a pull-up. So my trainer introduced something new into my training.
DIA is set to become the nation's seventh airport to start using a new browser-based technology to track airplanes through every phase of movement on airport grounds.
The Denver Post reports the system called Sensis Aerobahn could be equated to a localized GPS tracking system for airplanes.
While the Federal Aviation Administration monitors air traffic on runways during takeoff and landing, ramp-tower operators take over management whenever the airplanes are in ramp and gate areas. Airport officials hope the system, which will be implemented Monday, will cut costs, increase efficiencies and improve safety.
The system is meant to reduce runway incursions, allow the continuation of operations in low-visibility conditions, decrease taxi delays and improve long-term surveillance data.
Denver paid $2.44 million for Aerobahn's service and sensors.
